Today, I'll be reviewing the Angel Lip Tint in Juicy Red from Yadah. I thought I'd do this post first because it requires less effort and I have swatches from some time ago, though they're not very well done because I didn't have energy to edit them to become prettier or whatever. Just bear with me for now because I'm totally drained of energy nowadays. I think I even look stoned in some of the pics haha.
I bought this online at Qoo10 (link directs you to the page) when it was on sale at 5.90 SGD, plus free shipping. Shipping is now at 1 SGD but occasionally the price drops to 4.90 SGD, so grab it quick when it happens!!
When I wanted to buy this, I decided to do my research first and search for reviews on this lip tint. It was super hard to find reviews of this particular colour because apparently EVERYONE is choosing the other colour- Angel Lip Tint in Red Wine. SO IRRITATING!
In the end I decided to choose Juicy Red because I had tons of lip products similar to the Red Wine colour (like reddish pink) and I wanted to try something more refreshing and unique. I mean, if the whole wide world is going to buy the same colour, how boring can it get?!
Now I'm already starting to eye PeriPera's lip tints, particularly the orange one. It looks so awesome! I bought Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain in Rendezvous, hoping to get coral lips but it was somewhat of a disappointment because the colour of my lips overpowered it and it ended up looking more red than anything else :( I tried using lip concealer but as it was a lip tint it kinda mixed in with the concealer and I ended up with pasty orange on my lips that looked terrible.
I really like this lip tint because it can be used in two ways-
1) For the 'Bitten' effect
2) Over the entire lip, like a lipstick.
I really need to make a tutorial on how to achieve the bitten effect because I am seeing so many ugly pictures out there that totally ruins the effect.
Firstly, before you use this,
MAKE SURE YOUR LIPS ARE IN GOOD CONDITION.
I can't describe how MANY people who review this with chapped and peeling lips and oh god it is a sight for sore eyes. If you look at some of the beauty blogger reviews you will know what I mean. I will not name names but some of them are truly awful.
If you have chapped and peeling lips, having the bitten effect will make it look like you're bleeding from the mouth instead of having a sexy 'bitten' effect. Plus, the tint will make all the lines and cracks show up all the more, and you don't want that, do you?
I will show you the pictures before I make any further comments on the product.
I always like to let pictures speak for themselves :)
just realised I have a super ugly long chin in this photo omg
Note: I am not nude lol
APPLYING THE LIP TINT...
Oh noes I look like I have buck teeth here
Stupid camera adjusted the whole pic to a yellowish tone to balance out the red of the lips
I enlarged two of the pictures so you can see the difference. The difference doesn't show up much in pictures because I'm using the webcam camera on my computer instead of my Canon 60D DSLR (Canon FTW! Nikon is not user-friendly at all and the colour isn't as good). If I have time I'll try to retake the pictures, but no promises! But omg my face is so blurry and pixellated.... okay okay I'll retake them. You win!
On to the review.
I really like the lip tint and I use it almost everyday, because this is one lip product that has a brighter lip colour than my bare lips. It is similar to my actual lip colour but a little more intense, so it layers well. I see some pictures out there where the reviewers have a big colour diference between their bare lips and the lip tint, which doesn't give such a nice effect.
In fact, I would highly suggest that you apply a mild tinted lip balm (like Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Glow or Pink Blast, see review here). Lip Ice Sheer Colour is too bright for the subtle effect anyway, and too pink, unless you are getting the Red Wine Liptint (which leans towards bright pink rather than red)
It is a pity that this lip tint doesn't seem to last long on my lips (maybe because I'm always eating), for me it lasts up to 1-2 hours max on normal school days. If I wear it while going out it lasts a little over 2 hours, but that's it. Re-application is a must if you want to have the bitten effect for a longer time period.
On a random side note, I always tend to eat this lip tint by accident when I'm applying it and it has a sweet/ sour taste. Apparently some reviews say Benetint has a terrible bitter taste, so maybe you can factor this in if you tend to eat it like me haha. Anyway, Yadah is a MUCH cheaper alternative to Benetint.
And I get it on my teeth too! How does that even happen omg.
Okay actually I know why but it is so irritating.
Okay I should explain how the 'bitten' effect is achieved.
Apply the lip tint to the center part of your bottom lip first (nearer the back),
...and purse your lips together several times. Like kissing or doing lip smackers!
Repeat for the top lip, making sure you apply close to the inner part of the lip.
That's all folks!
I'll do a video tutorial next time if I can get Youtube to work on my browser.
Loves: The awesome colour!
Hates: How quickly it fades. Grrrrrrrrr.
Price: 6.90SGD on Qoo10 , sometimes drops to 5.90 SGD during sales.
